    i grabbed some volkl gotamas in 176 length. Last season I bought a pair of Nordica Hot Rods that are 162 in length. After skiing the Got I miss the added length and flat mounted bindings. Trying to unload the Hot Rods for $350 and a pair of intermediate Heads for $75. If I could guarantee that I can unload those two sets of skis at a ski swap I wouldn't feel bad about grabbing the Watea. Decisions...

    PS - I am a gear whore.

    Of course you can unload them. Just explain the old buy low sell high thing to your wife. It's spring, prices are low. Buy the Wateas. In the fall folks are thinking skiing and there is more demand for skis. Sell the old ones then . . .
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    I skied primarily on my 94 Watea's this season and absolutely love them. I think they do everything well - powder, chowder, crud, groomers, pretty manageable in the bumps too. That said all my previous skis have been 74 (Dynastar 4800's) or narrower underfoot and I never demo'd I just bought the Watea's on a whim a year ago, so maybe I'd raving about any ski in this class...

    Mine are the 07-08 season w/ different graphic but same ski otherwise.
